Mr. Kitty Cat

Mr. Kitty Cat is completed and in the mail for my Grandson's Birthday. The pattern is from Jane Eborall and is pretty easy except for the "Cross Eyes"!! Jane has just published an article on adding a bead to the center of SR. I will have to make another cat and try her new method! I omitted the beads for his mouth

Tatted Flag

Tatted heart Flag Pin worked up quickly using size 20 in Flora and Lizbeth threads. The red and white are split rings. I have put off split rings for a year and a few months ago I followed the videos and instructions from a few web sites. It is easy to do and I am looking for more patterns with split rings. The pattern is by B.J. Heisler and can be found at Heisler's Creative Stitchery.

Kevin's Christmas Stocking

Finished the Christmas Stocking and in time for Christmas!! My Niece asked me to make her 2 stockings. The next one will be for her. It has a lot of beads, crazy quilting, cross stitch, tatting and a crochet braid with 2 yarns. About 20 hours of work. It will be entered in our County Fair next month.

Tatted Edging for Jacket

This was designed for a bookmark, however, I am putting it on a denim jacket. I like the way the Lizbeth thread changes and it perks up the jacket.
